Review

The layout is that of solitaire, but your task is to form words by moving letters from one column to another. The game is made more attractive by the fact that the columns are set over white sandy beaches. You get to earn points for every word you manage to create. In the same way that you collect a succession of cards vertically in a normal solitaire game, you will need to form words vertically in this game.

There are also power-ups you can use to win bonus points. Once you’ve used all the letters, you get to move on to the next level. And even if you don’t use up all the cards, as long as you only leave 9 cards or less unused, you still get the chance to win and move on to the next level. The DONE button will flash when you have already used the minimum number of letters required in every level. If you feel that you’re stuck and you haven’t reached the minimum number of letters, you can always click on the UNDO button.

And just like solitaire, whenever you use the face-up card on top of a face-down card to form a word, the face-down card will be flipped to reveal a new letter. You may then use this new letter to form a new word. You will know if the letter you place on top of another does not correctly lead to the formation of a word because it will not stay on top of that letter. Rather, it will go back to where it came from and the card under it will not be flipped.

You will notice that there are diamonds on top of each column. These diamond will light up whenever you successfully form a word in the corresponding column. Again, similar to a normal solitaire game, you can move any group of cards that form a word to an empty column.

On the left side of the screen, you are given a bonus word. If you manage to form this bonus word, you earn one of six Power-Ups. You may also get Joker cards, which can be used as any letter to help you form words.

The game was originally released in 2006. It is now available in 7 languages: English, Deutsch, Spanish (Mexico), Spanish (Spain), French, Italian, and Portuguese.

With all the features this game has to offer, there are endless possibilities for you in terms of fun, excitement, and winnings. Prepare for some beach fun without leaving the comfort of your home!
